  • I enjoyed the premise of the title and decided that i would buy myself the original PC game that was released around a decade or so ago
  • It does have some unique elements which I found enjoyable but as an overall experience i wasn't wholly satisfied
  • There is a massive amount of side-quests to undertake of you do choose to, but as much as i like completing random quests for treasure and experience points, in a fantasy themed role playing game I really like to try and immerse myself into the story and it's characters
  • I know Good Old Games has this one available for DRM free download for about six dollars, so trying it out to see if it's your sort of thing may not be such a bad idea

      Lately I had played a role playing game on the Xbox 360 called Divinity Ego Draconis. I enjoyed the premise of the title and decided that i would buy myself the original PC game that was released around a decade or so ago. It’s in the same vein as games like Never winter Nights, Baldur’s Gate and one of my favorites of all time Arcanum.

      It does have some unique elements which I found enjoyable but as an overall experience i wasn’t wholly satisfied. I did like the way that the world map is blacked out and only


      becomes visible as you venture through the different areas as it did have me a good idea on where i could go to get new quests and search for better armor and weapons. I also liked the fact that there was a lot of voice acting, which is something that is all to often looked over in games of the genre.

      what i didn’t like though is the fact that the actual storyline of the game is pretty thin and really should have been fleshed out. There is a massive amount of side-quests to undertake of you do ...


      • choose to, but as much as i like completing random quests for treasure and experience points, in a fantasy themed role playing game I really like to try and immerse myself into the story and it’s characters. Doing that in Divine Divinity proved to be a taxing task because the storyline is hardly even there at all, and the way the game is designed you can only progress the story when you are adequately leveled up, which means that in between every little storyline elements you have to go off side questing for hours on end before getting
        to the next part.

        If you enjoy lots of senseless side questing and building up character stats to high levels you will probably love this game to pieces because it certainly does the side quest element very, very well. But if like myself you like a dense and twisting plot line there is many other games to bother with before this one. I know Good Old Games has this one available for DRM free download for about six dollars, so trying it out to see if it’s your sort of thing may not be such a bad idea.
